Yes, and timing is also essential.

I love to cook. Knowing how to prepare and time the cooking is an Art and a Science. If I cut into the correct thicknesses, I can saute ginger root and garlic simultaneously and they are both done at the same time.
Gottta cut the ginger root smaller or the garlic cooks sooner.

Little details but they matter.

My homemade habenaro-ginger-mango sauce tastes WAY better if you let it sit in the refrigerator overnight. A taste of the freshly cooked batch is a bit too hot and has some harsh overtones. Just letting it sit and cool makes it much smoother and richer tasting. Why? I dunno, it just works.

Same as some of my guitar licks!!!! Cheers, Kuru

We weren't very good at cooking before this, we ate out a lot. We did get an outdoor grill for Christmas and Michael is becoming a grill master and I'm getting the rice, noodles and veggies down. We still get restaurant food, usually pizza, a few times a week, usually delivery.
I still get my running in almost every day. The gym is closed, so have make do the best I can. Our beaches are closed but we can still surf. Get in, get out and leave, no lingering. Everyone is following the rules, we know what will happen if we don't.

I downloaded and installed Presonus Studio One and Toontrack EZ Drummer today. I intend to work with the tutorials and learn how to record my tunes. Sitting on my cakes and watching TV is getting old.


Always remember that you�re unique. Just like everyone else.
